 About the Book 

Mark Twains humorous account of his six years in Nevada, San Francisco, and the Sandwich Islands is a patchwork of personal anecdotes and tall tales, many of them told in the vigorous new vernacular of the West. Selling seventy five thousandMoreMark Twains humorous account of his six years in Nevada, San Francisco, and the Sandwich Islands is a patchwork of personal anecdotes and tall tales, many of them told in the vigorous new vernacular of the West. Selling seventy five thousand copies within a year of its publication in 1872, Roughing It was greeted as a work of wild, preposterous invention and sublime exaggeration whose satiric humor made pretension and false dignity ridiculous. Meticulously restored from a variety of original sources, the text is the first to adhere to the authors wishes in thousands of details of wording, spelling, and punctuation, and includes all of the 304 first-edition illustrations. With its comprehensive and illuminating notes and supplementary materials, which include detailed maps tracing Mark Twains western travels, this Mark Twain Library Roughing It must be considered the standard edition for readers and students of Mark Twain.
